“Very nice cemetary - it is like Mount Auburn in Cambridge, MA”

Cedar Hill Cemetery
Ranked #13 of 64 things to do in Hartford
Attraction details
Reviewed 28 May 2013

The Cedar Hill Cemetery is a garden cemetery so it is a very nice place to walk around and/or learn about the famous people buried there. Such names as Katharine Hepburn, J.P. Morgan, Thomas Gallaudet, and Horace Wells are buried there. They offer a free audio tour via the cell phone, which is nice. On a day with good weather, it is a very beautiful place to walk. We even saw two baby deer!

This cemetery is beautifully appointed and is a wonderful place to walk and see some amazing sculpture. If you're into historical places, there are a number of famous and semi-famous people buried here -- Katharine Hepburn for example. The Cedar Hill Cemetery Foundation has a great self-guide brochure/map. Bring a camera.

The cemetery can be reached by city transit, but check service times before heading out. Located close to lovely Trinity College campus. This is a large cemetery, so be prepared for some walking. Maps and visitor information is located at the front entrance. We were paying respects to Ms Katherine Hepburn, who is buried in a family plot marked with a large boulder. Many notables, including JP Morgan are also buried at Cedar Hill.

Very nice cemetery to be buried in when talking cemeteries. They keep the place looking very nice. I've attended several funerals where the burial plots have been in Cedar Hill Cemetery.
